More about Jesse Ibanez

Meet Jesse. Personally, my purpose is that I aspire to be the role model of a great man to my daughters, Kamilah & Kahli, and of a great husband to my incredible wife, Andrea. Professionally, my purpose is to be an Expert Consultant, a Master at the art of negotiation with a “finger tip feel” for the deal, and oversee as I orchestrate all of the transactional details for people on the move. I’m a 23 year resident of San Diego and have helped hundred of families get into and out of homes in almost every nook and cranny of this beautiful county we call San Diego, and “home.” Professionally, I believe there is a reason why we bump into the people we do in this life. I don’t take those intersections to folks lightly. My purpose is that when I am lucky enough to bump into you, that when our time together is complete, I will have done my part in “leaving each other better than how we ...

  • Jesse listed and sold my home

      Jesse and his team at The GreenHouse Group helped me sell my home. But when I say 'helped', that is in fact a gross understatement. Jesse and his phenomenal team were pivotal in making the sale of my home even possible. I had a very unique property and certain elements of this sale turned out to be rather complex. Jesse was by my side the entire time. He kept me posted at every turn; detailed e-mails and phone conversations were constant throughout the process. If an issue came up, a solution was already in the works. This particular deal required a HUGE amount of problem solving in areas I was not familiar with, yet everything was explained to me in great detail and decisions were made as a team. I was truly amazed at the pace he and his team worked at. I can only put that down to the years of experience they have and level of efficiency at which they operate. I must say, reflecting on this deal, what I appreciate the most was that throughout the entire process, there was always a can-do attitude. I would absolutely consider Jesse not only the person who did everything he could to help me sell my home, but a friend. To Jesse, Renata, Christina and all the other team members at The Greenhouse Group working super hard behind the scenes, THANK YOU. You are truly incredible at what you do.

      • Jesse helped me buy a home

          Jesse and his team helped us to buy and then 3 years later sell our home due to an out of state job change. In everything, Jesse was intuitive, communicative, patient, and knowledgeable. He and his team guided us through a very complicated short sale on the buying end, and then helped us maneuver through a traditional sale. He was incredible and we know we would not have been able to do it without him and his team, and he took us who knew absolutely nothing about real estate and made the whole thing understandable. I recommended Jesse without hesitation to buy or sell a home.

        • Jesse listed and sold my home

            Jesse and the GreenHouse Group team are the most thorough real estate services company I have ever worked with. I've bought and sold multiple homes in the past and this was, by far, the greatest experience. Jesse hand held us through the entire process. First, we came in, had a meeting to discuss our goals and objectives. We settled on a plan to both sell my condo and buy a new home. One of the things that was most impressive is that our photos that were used to market our condo for sale were beyond professional. It's something that Jesse does because he knows that pictures on an iPhone are not going to sell our house. Included in our photos was a video taken from a drone that showed our property from an aerial view. That is some next level stuff there. The best thing about working with Jesse, is that you get all of his resources. Everyone on his team is an expert in the transaction point they are helping you with. So, rather than an agent that is a jack of all trades, master of none, all of the members of the Greenhouse Group have an area of expertise and they execute that area flawlessly. There is no detail that went unnoticed by the team during our transaction. After working with Jesse and the Greenhouse Group, I wonder why anyone would choose another realtor. Great Job to Jesse and his team! 10+ out of 10

          • Jesse listed and sold my home

              We sorted through countless reviews when looking for an agent to help us sell our house. With so many glowing reviews for GHG, I learned first hand why. We planned on being in a different state when we sold. So we needed a firm that would be able to handle that. We had Jesse (Realitor) and Renata (designer) walk through the house to see what they thought. They put together a general plan for the things that should be done to get maximum value for the house. Our situation: We owned a 3 Bed 2 Bath house in Kearney Mesa. We had 6 months to get the house ready for the sale. Our house had unpermitted additions that added value to the house but were none the less....Unpermitted. Jesse was excited about the house but had no reservations talking about some of the things that can come up in Escrow due to the unpermitted additions. Renata was up to the task too. We didn’t want to make any design decisions. She knew better then anyone, what buyers are looking for. So it was nice to not have to make any decisions about design. We knew from the day we decided to sell that we no longer had a “home”. It was now an income property. An investment. Jesse and Renata shared our vision for putting some money into the house so we could maximize our investment. After coming up with a plan that fit our budget we decided to start renovations. We used two different contractors from TheGreenHouse’s contacts. Both did a great job and were very reasonably priced. We all met at the house again to come up with a plan for the kitchen with our remaining budget. We came up with a great midddle ground “face lift” with the kitchen that would really make the house pop......without popping our designated budget. It’s worth noting that there were several times during renovations, I would ask them if we should be doing MORE to the house? They would say “Let’s stick to the budget and trust the process”. They could have easily said, “you’re right. That would really help the house sell”. But they had our interests at heart and wanted to make sure that they did right by us. This was when I knew that we hired the right people. Our timeline changed when our second child came 2 weeks earlier then expected. We came together and concluded we should vacate the house a little earlier so the workers could bang the job out and we come to market a little earlier then expected. We were going to test GreenHouse’s abilities to finish the sale while we were out of state. The day before we moved to Colorado, we all met one last time at the house. We went over all the things left to do to the house. We hugged and said our goodbyes. Our house was now in their hands and my family couldn’t have felt more comfortable with the situation. Moving is stressful enough. Jesse and Renata made it easy to focus on the move. The work on the house was completed (right on time and budget). The house was staged, by Renata, and ready to be shown. The pictures were amazing. The market got a little hotter since our first meeting and the house looked amazing so Jesse suggested we should list at $578,000. Thanks to GreenHouse’s amazing marketing team, we had 14 weekend showings scheduled in the first 2 days!!! We got 8 offers for ABOVE asking price. Then we got the offer we couldn’t refuse. $24k above asking price. Things got even better when Jesse somehow bid them UP to $600,000. We were all skeptical that the house would appraise for $600k with the unpermitted work. We were at the mercy of the appraisers. But Jesse put us in position to get the maximum amount of money that we could get. Jesse met the appraisers at the house. They all collaborated and had an open dialog about the “worth” of the unpermitted additions. The final appraisal came back at $600,000! All thanks to Jesse “showing them the light”. The buyers inspector found several things that needed repair (as most do and should). So we did the work that we work we thought to be fair. Jesse was on top of hiring the correct contractors to get the work done. All done well and reasonably priced. Electricians were super busy during this period so we couldn’t find one to do the work. Instead of going with an unproven electrician, we decided to offer them a $1,500 credit to complete the electrical needs on their own. Long story short, Jesse used his savvy experience to close the deal. With Jesse’s amazing negotiating/salesmanship skills, Renata’s keen eye for design and managing our budget and the long list of team members on the GreenHouse team.....we ended up closing the deal for $22,500 above our HIGH asking price. Selling a house is stressful. Everyone thinks you just put it on the market and you sell. Well that is NOT how it works. Jesse prepared us for this reality the first time we met. He prepared us for the issues that would probably come up. We were a TEAM from the start. We made a plan and executed it. I’m so happy that we had the good fortune to find them

                I love the Greenhouse Group!! Why? Because they sold my old home in 4 hours after it hit the MLS. And they helped me find a new home that I absolutely LOVE! Jesse has the knowledge of the market, home values and the keen eye in marketing your home for sale. But Renata is his secret weapon! She comes in and makes your home so beautiful that you get top dollar on the sale!! I highly recommend the GHG for buying, selling and/or refinancing your home! They treat you like family and really care about you and your most precious asset...your home! Less

              • Jesse listed and sold my home

                  Really enjoyed working with Jesse and The Greenhouse Group. They were all professional, attentive and accommodating. They were extremely diligent and worked with me every step of the way as I sold me first condo. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell there home!

                • Jesse helped me buy a home

                    As we plan our move to San Diego we searched the web for the best realtors in San Diego. After connecting with several we chose GreenHouse and are partnering with them to find our new home. Every interaction has been absolutely delightful and world class. Jesse and his team (we are working with Craig who is terrific) are outstanding. We love their personal and professional approach, no doubt we are in great hands. We like their integrated team approach with selling, buying and financing specialists. They clearly deserve their reputation as the best real estate group in San Diego and we highly recommend them.

                  • Jesse helped me buy a home

                      Jesse is nothing less than a remarkable real estate professional. He knows every detail of the process inside and out and his negotiation skills are incredible. He was able to help us complete a tough transaction and took care of all of the details along the way. I highly recommend Jesse and the GreenHouse Group.

                    • Jesse helped me buy a home

                        I was looking to purchase my 2nd property and enlisted the help of Jesse and Anahi to help me find a place I could live at for a few years and eventually turn into a rental. From the initial consult (which I'll admit I was a little hesitant, as I knew what I wanted and was antsy to get the process going), to getting keys to my place, the whole team at GreenHouse was responsive, helpful, ENERGETIC and 100% looking out for my best interest. Both Jesse and Anahi played devil's advocate and a few times talked me out of moving forward with a place because they knew what was important to me and knew that it wouldn't be the best fit. I don't know many real estate agents who would turn down business to make sure you found the place you love. But so glad they did. I'm now living in an awesome apartment and couldn't be happier!! I've since referred friends to them and will most definitely be a repeat customer! :)
